How to Draw Cartoon Faces

The great thing about cartoon drawing is that it is simply meant to “suggest” things like eyes, nose, hair, etc. I have plans for a big comic book project with my students next week and feel that starting with some practice drawings like the above will help them stay on track and not get overly detailed. Here’s the steps I’ll lead them through to create a few quick characters before they begin their Comic Book Project. To copy, simply click on the image above, drag it to your desktop, open and print.

My daughter had to draw a picture of each character in her book for a book report project. I had just downloaded these faces for fun, so she used them as a starting point. Wow, did it make it easier for her. The faces all came out great.Perfect timing!

Forget about realism, perspective, and shading! This is where you are free to let your imagination run wild, and break all the rules.

Drawing cartoons has always been a great love of mine. To me the appeal of cartoons is that they are simple, and easy to draw. If you keep practicing eventually you will develop your own style of cartoon drawing.

We're doing cartooning with 3 & 4 year olds this summer, so I wanted to send a big hug and say thank you so much for this. Can't wait to see what the kids come up with!
